Some interesting Mustang fact

While reading my book Iron Fist Lead Food. They said that every Mustang since the first one rolled off of the assembly line at the same point. To bad they closed it down for the new ones and lost this

Re: Some interesting Mustang fact

Great book...I really enjoyed reading it myself. I like how one of the line workers ends up with the last 04 cobra made on the line...thought that was appropriate. But the **** they went through to get that car on the market...great read.

^ X2.

And Spec is referring to the Dearborn plant, where every pre-05 Mustang was built. Now there built in Mexico or something.

You won't regret it and after reading it you will realize why Colleti is the man.

Re: Some interesting Mustang fact

I thought all SVT's had their engines built by hand by two people but that was not true until the 03/04 and only for the 03/04... They used to assemble them nearly in full and the svt guys just put on the final few peices~ and starting in 03 they built the whole thing in pairs.

Re: Some interesting Mustang fact

Just for giggles....here are the supplement pictures to the book that didn't make it in because it ended up being self published. Some of them did, others didn't. And these are in color.

Re: Some interesting Mustang fact

very awesome book. Last chapter kinda made me mad how SVT was killed off, or the fact the new mustangs dont come from the same manufacturing facility that they came from since their creation, however made me felt good knowing what work went into making the 03/04 Cobras a reality, and now i own a car that everyone on that project poured their heart and soul into, makes you think that its not really just another average 400+whp car, its something even more special. Really dont ever want to sell her now after reading that book, almost feel like i own a small piece of history.

Re: Some interesting Mustang fact

You do...and it is the reason mine will never leave my driveway.

This car will go down in the books as a legend....it is legend now...and come 20-30 years from now, it will be up there like the legends we have today. People will swoon at the car shows....
